Our experience tells us that will, estate and trust disputes are many and varied and can be extremely damaging to family relationships as well as costly.
With an in-depth knowledge advising on the strengths and weaknesses of disputes, our team will help you to identify the key contested areas and determine the right strategy to resolve your dispute with the aim of achieving the best outcome for you and your family.
We are fully committed to resolving disputes and utilise platforms such as mediation and alternative dispute resolution (ADR). However, should litigation become unavoidable, you can be assured our team will advise and support you throughout that period and keep you abreast of costs at all times.
Our head of department, James McMullan, is a member of the Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS), Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE) and the Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners (STEP).
